Dr. Kamps serves people in two main ways: through her private practice, and as part of a larger service delivery system called KAMPS.

Dr. Kamps is a registered psychologist, kinesiologist, and certified teacher who has been trained in many different disciplines. She uses her knowledge in these areas to assess what might be causing motor difficulties in children, youth, or teens.

In addition, Dr. Kamps does private consulting and works as an educational psychologist for a provincial school district.

In addition to her professional roles, Paulene and her husband, Don, parent their four biological children (now teenagers and young adults). They also enjoy travelling, gardening. camping, playing and watching sports, supporting their children's endeavors, and staying involved in church, school, commmunity, and family functions.

 

About Us

KAMPS is a psychological assessment, diagnostic, and treatment service for children and youth who are experiencing difficulties with fine and/or gross motor skills which affects their learning, socialization, and ability to participate in sports and recreational activities.

Using visual, verbal, and kinesthetic teaching techniques, Dr. Kamps (and at times other clinicians) help children and youth learn basic motor skills and thereby increase their participation in sports, other physical/recreational activities, and social settings.
The assumption behind KAMPS services is that your child will use meta-cognitive strategies to address his or her motor issues. Specifically, this means that your child can use his or her intellectual strengths to understand and apply basic bio-mechanical principles, and in conjunction with other kinesthetic teaching techniques and plenty of practice opportunities, acquire basic motor skills.

......................................................................................................

Dr. Kamps is also the author of "The Source for Developmental Coordination Disorder". Using a reader friendly style that is meaningful to parents, teachers, and teacher’s assistants, she has written for many other newsletters, magazines, and other similar publications. She is passionate about her work. Her goal is to share knowledge gained in the areas of Kinesiology and Psychology to discern what area(s) of difficulty your child is having in the acquisition of motor skills and abilities.

Kinesiology: The study of the movement of the human body.
Psychology: The study of human behaviour.
